Hi there,

also if i get two dual channel kits do they have to be the same speed? or is it okay to have a 800MHz and a 677MHz?

It's always best to run in dual channel mode if you can. Don't mix and match different speeds, as the faster RAM (in this case, the 800MHz) will be slowed down to match the 667MHz. It's best just to grab one kit that's all ready for you to go. I agree with Titan8990's choice, this link.

Is it due to it only being 350W? If so what would be the minimum required to run and high-midrange video card?

A high-quality unit, I would say 600W minimum for a mid-range graphics card, and 700W minimum for a high-end graphics card. Of course, it also depends on how many amps are on the +12V rail(s).

Cheers,

Troy

unless you have a 64bit system, you won't be able to see 4gigs. it will only display like 3g or something

i have yet another question, i've been reading reviews on computer parts and i've been reading on some barebones that they can't get any version of Linux/Ubuntu to work on them, why would this be?
